Architectural plans for the Auschwitz death camp, discovered last year, have been presented to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his visit to Berlin.

The 29 sketches of the camp, which was built in Nazi-occupied Poland, date back to 1941, and include detailed blueprints for living barracks, delousing facilities and crematoria, including gas chambers.

The plans, which are signed by the head of the SS, Heinrich Himmler, and Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Hoess, are to be displayed at Israel’s official Holocaust memorial.
